We are very excited to announce that the FRN Leadership Initiative has officially launched. For this inaugural series, we accepted 13 participants from Clark Atlanta University; Farmingdale State College; Marymount Manhattan College; New York University; Saint Peter’s University; Stockton University; the University of Puerto Rico at Arecibo and Humacao; and the University of the Sacred Heart in Puerto Rico. The virtual program will extend over the fall 2021 and spring 2022 semesters.
This Initiative will prepare emerging leaders to transform their own campuses by getting them to recognize opportunities to lead up, down, and sideways. This program will also build a leadership community across the FRN for continuing leaders who want to facilitate change and maximize collaboration within and between institutions. Ultimately, the goal of this program is to contribute to the transformation of the higher education ecosystem.
FRN Student Exchange Program
The Student Exchange Program works in conjunction with the Faculty Resource Network to provide opportunities for academic exchange to outstanding undergraduates of New York University and, currently, five Network institutions: Morehouse College, Spelman College, the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras campus, the University of the Sacred Heart in Puerto Rico, and Xavier University of Louisiana. Students accepted into the program spend a semester of full-time study at a host campus enjoying an experience unique to these richly historic institutions. The Student Exchange Program is offered during the spring semester of each academic year to students with sophomore or junior standing. Participating students reside in on-campus housing facilities engaging in various campus activities. Many students can satisfy major and other degree requirements while studying at one of the host schools by receiving prior written approval from their academic advisors. To learn more about the Student Exchange Program and opportunities to host students on your campus, contact us at FRN@nyu.edu.
